Fox River Mall Scheels, located off Highway 41, first opened its doors in Appleton in 1994. In 2003, Scheels expanded to a 120,000 square foot retail shopping experience that showcases a broad selection of sports, sportswear, and footwear under one roof.
Unlike a typical sporting goods store or department store, Scheels is a collection of women's, men's, youth, specialty, and sport and game shops. Brand-name concept shops by Nike, adidas, Columbia, and The North Face will keep you active in any season. Each shop is staffed with experts who are focused on their passions.
Special attractions include a beautiful, custom-built Home Décor and Gift Lodge that features a unique collection of beautiful gifts, home décor, and artwork, and a "try before you buy" archery shooting range. A fudge shop serves 24 flavors of homemade fudge and Starbucks® coffee.
The Scheels in Appleton features boutiques ranging from technical running gear and the latest fashion sportswear, to spectacular hunting and fishing shops. The sport shoe, hiking boot, and casual footwear selection offers everything for toddlers to serious climbers, and selections ranging from beach sandals to fashion boots for women. Outdoor enthusiasts will experience world-class shops including golf, bike, ski, paddle, and sport and game shops. The gun and hunting shops have the largest retail selection of guns in the region, ranging from everyday shooters to collectible guns valued at $20,000.
High school and college fans - this is a one-stop shop for all the necessary attire and accessories to showcase your school pride! This Scheels houses a huge team shop, which is larger than some stand-alone stores, and features logo apparel from many local schools including the Packers, Brewers, University of Wisconsin and much more.
Scheels offers a complete Service Shop. From bike repairs and skate sharpening to ski/board waxing and racquet stringing, each Scheels store has an in-house service technician team to get your gear ready for the season. Our Barnett-certified technicians have received the best bike mechanic training in the industry, and are ready to use their skills to keep your wheels on the road.
Several shops feature Scheels Outfitters products.
